Like Tosiedee, all Thai men over the age of 21 must register to participate in an annual lottery in April that selects those who must perform military service for up to two years.

This chance-style military recruitment process has been controversial in Thailand for many years and becomes a hot topic before every election.

Tonsiedee was relieved when the lottery was black, but he hoped the lottery system would end when a new government was elected.

Thai voters vote early in Phuket, May 7.

In the general election, 52.4 million Thai voters will vote for a total of 500 seats in the House of Representatives.

Pheu Thai Party is expected to win the most seats in the House of Representatives.

Pheu Thai announced that it would not form a governing coalition with military-backed groups, and pledged to push for an end to the controversial lottery-based conscription system and many other issues.

Meanwhile, the Move Forward party is also attracting a large number of young voters.

A young voter speaks to the media after voting early in Phuket, Thailand.

Many young Thais want reforms to limit the military’s influence.

`Thailand stands still after every coup. The army should stay in barracks,` Mok said.

Thai students in recent years have organized movements calling for limits on the power of the military and royal family, and the abolition of the country’s lese majeste law.

Move Forward promises to reform the law and Pheu Thai candidate Paetongtarn says the issue should be debated in parliament.

Commentators say this is the first time the lese majeste law has been discussed so openly.

Natchaya, 18, also hoped for change when she voted early for the first time in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand.

`Thai education should apply diverse programs, from many sources. Pollution in Chiang Mai is also a big problem, affecting our lives every day,` Natchaya said.

In the south, Ekapong Noojaroen, 24, from Songkhla, also expressed hope that the new government will invest more in the quality of public education and create more jobs in areas outside the capital.
